The machine appears to have a clever way of correcting out of balance loads. However, if it is unsuccessful at re-balancing your wash, it just rocks the drum back and forth, pretty much forever. Don't try to wash a single bathroom rug. Not happening.

Purchased this to replace a 15+ year old top-loader. Although I had read reviews so knew the drawbacks of these new machines, I had no idea how truly annoying they are! (1) Extremely long wash cycles (over 1 hour for a "normal/cotton" load). (2) Don't clean nor rinse very well (even using minimal detergent), so I always use the extra-water feature, but sometimes still end up running an extra rinse&spin cycle. (3) It is impossible to get bleach into the dispensing drawer without first pouring it into a container with a spout. (4) Hate having to dry the machine with a cloth AND leave the dispensing drawer and door open (as recommended in the instruction manual) to prevent the mold problem everyone talks about. The machines look so sleek and modern in the ads, but not so much in your house with the door and dispensing drawer hanging open! From what I read this is NOT an LG problem but a problem with all the newer machines. Wish someone still made old fashioned top loaders with an agitator, but things change and I'll just have to deal! If your old fashioned machine is still running, I suggest you keep it until it is no longer repairable.

          We bought this washing machine in October and it works so much better than our previous machine. Both were front loaders. Towels now wash without leaving an odor. The only problem I have found is that it is difficult to read some of the controls.

              Comments about LG White Front Load Washer:

              I bought this washer in October and had heard so many bad things about front loaders. The repairman who came out to look at the washer that had just died said to have an open mind and to buy LG. As someone who fixes appliances he said they have the best performance. Now i expected to still be disappointed but i bought one and am glad i did. I love it. Uses less water, very quiet and gets my laundry cleaner than any machine ever has. I am very happy with my purchase and went back to buy the matching dryer.

                  I bought this one year and two months ago. So two months after the year warranty ran out, the washer stopped working. It locked clothes inside and will no longer power on. Prior to this, it worked great.

                      Comments about LG White Front Load Washer:

                      It leaks and leaves puddles on the floor. I had a service call and then said that is the way it is designed. You have to leave the door open in-between uses and wipe down the seal every time you use the machine. I have had front loaders before and never had this problem. This is a bad design!

                      We bought this washer a month ago. We had our previous washer for over 10 years. This one is easy to use. Has lots of different settings. It did leak a little water when I washed throw rugs. The machine became unbalanced while spinning.

                          I bought this LG to replace the "other brand top seller Toploader" that could potentially explode. I realize now how much I love this machine because it really cleans well. It is super quiet and has a cute bell that lets you know when the cycle is over. What I really love about this machine is that it has a 15 minute cycle. As a stay at home mom that is doing laundry a lot, that rocks! I think I'm in love

                              Family of seven, this is our second LG Frontloader. We do multiple loads every day and have appreciated the durability of the LG product. I had our original LG sitting on a heavy duty rubber mat on top of oak planks to minimize the shaking of the house. This, however, is amazingly stable and doesn't seem to need any extra foundation. Very convenient options (slightly disappointed that there is no sanitary setting), and looks to use very little water - go very lightly on the soap!

                              Service and delivery comments:

                              Abt delivery was prompt, curteous, handled everything very professionally.
